Make it Pink! Make it Blue!

Helloooooo chocolate chippers! Anyone in a sugar coma from the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip post? Don’t worry; I’ll go easy on you and steer clear of the sugar today. Instead, let’s talk lunch: Sauteed peppers with oil and garlic, “buttered” whole wheat English muffin, walnuts and Candied Veggies. Today’s candy veggies = broccoli. They were […]

How to feed a Hungry Guy

What is it with guys and Monty Python? Saturday night, I sat through Monty Python and the Holy Grail with one of my guy friends. Next weekend, methinks I will force him to watch Notting Hill or another such girly movie. It’s payback time! Actually he already paid me back by letting me cook vegan food […]

About Me

100+ comments on yesterday’s post tells me y’all really like Henry. Or nut butter. Or maybe both? No time to write a big post today. I’ve been busy working on a new About Me page. I tried to make the page more personal, since I really enjoy reading the personal “about me” pages on your […]

Butter Obsessed

I sure do love butter. Peanut butter, coconut butter, even Chocolate Butter :). What I don’t eat of the dairy stuff, I make up for in all the other butters that find their way into my happy tummy. My newest obsession is gingerbread butter. After requests, I wrote specific ingredient amounts. You can see the […]

The Grapefruit Diet

It seemed like a good idea at the time… I got suckered into buying an 18-lb bag of grapefruit from Whole Foods for $4. Luckily grapefruit is part of my favorite pre-run breakfast… although it might not be anymore, by the time I get finished with this mondo bag!) Grapefruit is good post-run fuel as […]

Eating Pizza for Dessert

Something must have been in the breakfast wind last week. When I first posted about the amazing Breakfast Pizzerts, a lot of people made them. But by and by, the trend died down, as all trends do. (Hello Beanie Babies.) Yet suddenly, in one week, I got no fewer than fifteen comments, pingbacks, tweets, or […]

Healthy Cake that’s so easy to make

When do you take down your holiday decorations? We usually start on New Year’s Day. Heck, there’s nothing else to do on that day—no need to buy presents, no Christmas cookies to bake, and (unless you live in Hawaii), no one wants to venture out of the house! So it’s the perfect time to clean. […]

New Flavor: Blueberry Muffin Larabars

I’ll get my New Year’s Eve recap post up tomorrow. Since it’s only 9AM, I haven’t had a chance to write the post yet. Hopefully y’all had an awesome night :). Instead, today, I’ll gush about the surprise package I received in the mail on Thursday: Blueberry Muffin Larabars?! Didn’t even know they were making […]

Please Help!!

I hadn’t originally planned to post today. But I received an email from the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, which sparked me to action. This sanctuary is an amazing organization: it’s given over 2,000 formerly-abused animals a second chance at finding love. Obviously, places like this cannot exist without donations. And right now, if the Catskill Animal […]

Chocolate-Covered Gift Ideas

Afraid of sounding spoiled or show-off-y, I wasn’t planning on writing a post about what presents I got for Christmas. But then Caroline had a good point: it’s fun to see what others receive, because—if you’re anything like me—you have a hard time thinking of gift ideas! My favorite part of gift-getting is seeing how […]

Healthy Cookies for Santa

Happy Christmas Eve, fellow chocolate chips! (And peppermint chips too :).) Yesterday, I highlighted a few of my Raw Christmas Cookies. Today, it’s time for the baked cookies. Some are healthy, and all are vegan: Oatmeal Crinkle Cookies Single-Lady Chocolate-Chip Cookies Chocolate-Almond Cookies Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies Vegan Chocolate Pixies Sugar Cookies Other Cookies: Vegan […]

Raw and Vegan Christmas Treats

Raw Christmas cookies??? Oh poor Santa! He’s in for a surprise when he stops at my house ;). (Anyone see the movie, The Santa Clause? I love when the little girl gives Santa soymilk.) In honor of Christmas, I figured a cookie-themed post was needed. But my blog is teeming with so many cookie recipes […]

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Balls

As visions of Cookie Dough Balls danced in her head… Do you ever dream about a food? And then wake up and have to make it? That’s what I did this morning: I woke up and got straight to work making Gingerbread Cookie Dough Balls. They tasted just as good as I dreamed they would. […]

Going Raw for Lunch

I chickened out! I had a post all ready to go for today. It was pre-scheduled last night, which I often do with posts. But while I slept, it bugged me. I realized that the post made me sound preachy and the whole tone was just so negative. Plus, I decided that the week before […]

Raw Gingerbread Men

The return of the handsome men! It felt so weird to be listening to Christmas music and making cookies when the weather outside was 80 degrees and I was wearing shorts! Texas weather is so strange. Tomorrow, it’ll be back in the 30s. Because I have such a hard time making decisions, you get to […]
